Domination by Jon S Lewis

Their goal is simple: total domination.
With six arms and jaws that can snap a man in two, the warmongering race of aliens known as the Thule has conquered every planet they’ve attacked.

And now their invasion of Earth has begun.

Humanity’s only hope springs from a mysterious Thule legend about a Betrayer, whom they believe will rise up and destroy their people. The American government tried to manufacture their own Betrayer by injecting children with Thule blood but time after time the experiment failed . . . until Colt McAlister.

A decade later, Colt is a 16-year-old cadet at the CHAOS Military Academy where he’s training to defend mankind. But he’s afraid that the alien blood may be turning him into a Thule—and he’s beginning to suspect that fulfilling his role as the Betrayer may cost him everything.

Experience a cosmic battle filled with high-tech gear, gateways to other planets, and ultimate stakes. Not everyone will survive. But heroes will rise up and step into their destiny in this earth-shaking conclusion to the C.H.A.O.S trilogy.

My review:
     This is juvenile fiction, but I'm not so mature that I can't enjoy it as much as the intended age group. I had read the first two books in the trilogy, so I snagged this one when it came up for review.

    These are different books, as they involve aliens, but they are an enjoyable read, especially this last one. It has even more action and the hero of the story, Colt, has to step up to the plate and be the hero of the hour.

  Even though the book doesn't have a lot of Christian content, it does have a great message for teens that anyone can accomplish good if they try, that heroes can be average kids, they don't have to be adults who have it all together.

  I would recommend this series for boys, over girls. I passed the books on to my nieces and they didn't get into them. I'd guess boys would more.

The books should be read in order.
